Cask at GBBF 2007. A deep red - almost brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel and malt, and so is the flavor, leading to a slightly bitter finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is not my 7k rating, Alvinne Mano Negra is. Cask condition handpull at The County Hotel, JDW, Ashford. I haven’t had this in about 8 years, but i remember it being fantastic at The Mogul in Dover, so I was coming to the pub every day for a week hoping that the Available Soon sign would disappear and I could have this again. Black with ruby edges, lasting mid beige head. Some choc on the aroma, some dark fruits. Full in mouth, good juicy, malty balance in the mouth. God it’s brilliant, I love this. Choc and black cherry and a bit like a choc sponge in a glass. Fantastic and lives up to my long long memory of this great beer.

Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Dark brown, red with white head. Phew this is a tricky one to place, it is roasty, sweet and hoppy all at the same time, a cross over mild to bitter, but a very good one. The hops stand out with a grapefruit tartness and lemon peel and this is over a hint of charcoal and toast. A lovely beer.
